Caduet (amlodipine besylate / atorvastatin calcium)

Approved by the FDA in late January 2004, Caduet was approved as a dual therapy medicine for the simultaneous treatment of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Caduet is actually the first medicine to treat two different conditions in a single pill. Caduet contains both Norvasc (amlodipine besylate) for the treatment of high blood pressure, and Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) for the treatment of high cholesterol.

In clinical trials, Caduet was well tolerated by patients has been administered along with a variety of anti-hypertensive medications, including beta-blockers, thiazide diuretics, and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI). The most commonly reported Caduet side effects were fluid retention, headache, dizziness, abdominal pain and weakness. These side effects were largely characterized as mild to moderate.

Caduet is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to any component of this medication. Caduet users should promptly report to their doctor, any tenderness, muscle pain, or weakness, possible signs of serious side effects.

About the conditions that Caduet was developed to treat
High cholesterol levels and high blood pressure are the two leading risk factors for heart disease, a major problem for millions of individuals worldwide. Approximately 30 million people in the United States have both these conditions, and fewer than 10 percent have managed to achieve their recommended levels of blood pressure or cholesterol.

According to recently released guidelines, physicians are being encouraged to aggressively treat patients who have both high blood pressure and high cholesterol, especially for those with known coronary heart disease. Caduet is one of the newer and now increasingly popular means of treating these patients, joining the already immensely popular Lipitor.
